Takes a look at vinyl, the world’s second largest selling plastic. With humor, hope and a piece of vinyl siding firmly in hand, the filmmaker travels to America’s vinyl manufacturing capital and beyond in search of answers about the nature of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Her parents’ decision to “re-side” their house with this seemingly benign cure-all for many suburban homes turns into a toxic odyssey with twists and turns that most ordinary homeowners would never dare to take. Winner of several awards. Best Documentary and Research: Emmy Nominations Documentary Award Winner for Cinematography 2002 Sundance Film Festival First Prize Award for Best Documentary 2002 Bermuda International Film Festival Audience Award 2002 Philadelphia Festival of World Cinema Audience Award/Documentary 2002 Santa Cruz International Film Festival Dwell Magazine's Nice Modernisits Award for 2002 Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary High Falls Films Festival, NY
